Highland Close is an extremely rocky site sitting in the high elevations of the center cut of the Chehalem Moun- tain AVA. The fracturing of the basalt is moderate and the rocks in the vineyard are a combination of black, red (oxidized) and white (volcanic ash) basalt. At 1.88 acres Highland Close is the largest of the 1st expression sites but despite its size the soils are quite uniform. The wine has a distinctive energetic nose and a taste of mineral (iron) and crushed red fruit which is emblematic of the oxidized red basalt of this vineyard. The mineral flavors can be found coursing through a light velvet texture that sits gently on the tongue.
